Tomorrow Night Chic Pups Will Take to the New Hazlett for a Fashion Show

The Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council will present its ArtDOG kickoff, ‘unleashing’ serious doggie swag and style.



Didn't catch Style Week Pittsburgh and don't see yourself getting to the Big Apple during New York Fashion Week? Relax. You can attend the next best thing: a pooch fashion show.

Tomorrow night stylish canines will sport original creations inside the New Hazlett Theater at Unleashed. The Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council’s event serves as a kickoff to its annual Arts Day of Giving, affectionately dubbed “ArtDOG” and held next month. Beyond flaunting what they’ve got across the stage, the participating canines also will have a chance to win doggone good prizes and barking rights (sorry, we couldn't resist). Among those in the lineup for the show is the ArtDOG mascot, an adorable, adoptable canine from Animal Friends.

Want your pooch to be part of the fun? Arts council members and organizations must preregister their pets — and handcraft the dog's ensemble from scratch. Once the show concludes, you'll need to arrange for someone to keep an eye on Sparky while you take in live performances from such notables as Tami Dixon of Bricolage Production Co.
